Adeleke wins as Supreme Court dismisses Babayemi’s appeal
The Supreme Court, on Thursday, affirmed Senator Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the Governor-elect of Osun State.
Adeleke was declared the winner of the gubernatorial election that was held in the State on July 16.
The apex court, in a unanimous judgement by a five-man panel of justices, dismissed an appeal that was lodged against Adeleke by Prince Dotun Babayemi who laid claim to the governorship ticket of the PDP.
Babayemi emerged from a parallel primary election that was held by a faction of the party in the State.
Counsel to the Appellant, Mr. Adebayo Adelodun, SAN, withdrew the appeal after the panel led by Justice Amina Augie, drew his attention to the fact that the case was statute barred.
The panel had maintained that the appeal was incompetent, stressing that it was filed outside the 14 days period provided by the law.
